    "Firearms are onlyused to hunt or defend oneself."

    Correct for law abiding citizens. To bad there are places like this where we are prevented from defending our selves from the predators out there.

    Why not just money from wallets?

    How could this happen? Firearms are onlyused to hunt or defend oneself. The argument is ridiculous either way.

    I guess the robbers didn't see those big signs saying that firearms aren't allowed :)

    How could this happen? Firearms are not allowed on RDU property.

    They take the keys and wallets so they have an address to burglarize and credit cards to run up bills on before they are cancelled. The cell phones to give them time to get away.
